The Madeira Film Festival is immensely proud and privileged that the annual event is staged between Reid’s Palace Hotel and the Teatro Municipal Baltazar Dias. Considered to be one of the finest hotel establishments in the world, Reid’s is synonymous with excellence, grandeur and afternoon tea. Previous guests include Sir Winston Churchill, George Bernard Shaw, Gregory Peck, Roger Moore and King Umberto of Italy.
“The Madeira Film Festival is non – competitive. As opposed to awarding filmmakers a prize each delegate will receive the ‘Laurissilva Ambassador Award’ thus helping to create awareness and recognition of Madeira’s endemic forest. We believe MFF is actually a reward for independent filmmakers, thanks to the coveted locations and unique atmosphere, MFF has become the key annual film event on the island, with the fourth edition concluding in May 2015 the odyssey continues yet the remit remains: To screen films whereby the predominate content venerates Madeira’s Laurissilva Forest. To inspire & nurture local talent. To challenge & stimulate the audience by virtue of audio – visual communication. Filmmakers personally present their work at the majestic Municipal Theatre in Funchal.
